A word of precaution to those of you, who find German
Shepherd puppies at the local Shelter/ puppy mills/ Pet
shops. Keep in mind that these German Shepherd puppies
are probably not well bred and are at a higher risk for
health and temperament problems. A reference to temperament
is made because these dogs often have had no socialization
and have spent their lives in cages, many could be beyond
rehabilitation. They are also a bit more of a gamble in
terms of their potential temperaments because you have
no way of knowing the temperaments of the parents.

first few nights in your home
first few nights your German Shepherd Puppy will
be very apprehensive as they will be accustomed to constant
company. Leaving them alone will usually result in crying
and barking. So it is advisable that they should be with
their owners at night until they are habituated to being
alone. Initially keep the puppy basket in the lounge in
the day and at night next to your bed. put a warm water
bottle under the blankets. After a few days start to move
the basket nearer the door and finally outside of the
bedroom and into the place where you wish the German Shepherd
Puppy to sleep permanently.
have pleasant experience when meeting and coming in contact
with wide range of stimuli. Socialize your German Shepherd
Puppy from arrival by using Sounds Sociable therapy Programme.
This will ensure that your pup is being exposed to everyday
stimuli during the critical socialization period (6 -
12 week), as during this period the puppy cannot leave
the home as it is not yet fully vaccinated. By doing so
your German Shepherd Puppy will grow up to be friendly
and happy with people and other animals, resulting in
a well adjusted adult dog that can be taken anywhere.
your German Shepherd Puppy alone at the home
a place for your German Shepherd Puppy to be confined
when you are away, where there is a clear bed area and
a temporary toilet area. Creating two separate areas is
very important as puppies can not hold on for very long
when needing the toilet and do not like soiling in their
bed. Confining them will reinforce the feeling of security
and reduce destructive behavior (make sure that you have
lot of chewable toys to keep puppies occupied). While
leaving do not give added attention, it can give a too
big contrast between you being there and not being there.
Sudden isolation after lots of attention is confusing
and worrying for your German Shepherd Puppy. On returning
briefly greet your puppy without too much excitement.
Reward their good behavior once they have settled down.
Do not punish your German Shepherd Puppy if it has been
naughty, it will not understand.

|It is recommended
to give bath to your dog in quite and comfortable environment.
If necessary use lukewarm water to wet the whole body
surface thoroughly (area under belly, neck, the legs and
feet). A sponge can be used to wet the skin of the face.
Apply coat cleanser (soap or shampoo) all over the body
surface to produce good lather (read the label instruction
of soap/shampoo). Take care around the face area to avoid
eyes, nose, mouth and ears). Leave the lather on the dog
for 5 - 10 min (as per label instruction). It allows active
ingredient of soap/ shampoo to work. While waiting engage

remove all lather. Thoroughly dry your dog using hand
towel. After drying gently comb the hair.
German Shepherd Puppies skin

different skin and hair growth pattern compared to humans.

parasites are present on dog's coat, inside the ear and
in the environment where dog lives. Ticks, lice and fleas
are visible for naked eyes while mites are not visible

dog's skin for the presence of external parasites. These
parasites feed on the animal's blood or skin tissues.

parasites for many months just after single application.
They are in the form of collar or topical spray. Consult

good oral hygiene is necessary as the dogs frequently
suffer from periodontal diseases if not taken care. it
may result in the foul and offensive smell from the mouth
of your dog. There is frequent deposition of plaques on
the surface of teeth, which need to be removed regularly

plaques. Use of the product aimed at chewing is proved
to be useful in preventing plaque formation and overall

Shepherd Puppy Training
||Start your training the
moment your german shepherd puppy comes home.
||Always give your german
shepherd dog a treat when you call him to you.
||Train before meals or when
your german shepherd dog is relaxed
||Your german shepherd puppy
was bred for extreme trainability so limit your
training to under 5 minutes (short and sweet).
||A daily routine builds
good learning habits.
||Always end on a high note,
when the german shepherd puppy has done what you
||Do not overtrain. Your
german shepherd puppy will lose interest and not
retain what it did learn.
||Praise, praise, praise.
||Training up until a year
of age is all motivational. We start with food.
Vienna hot dogs cut in little pieces. There are
lost of training treats available at pet markets.
Just make sure that whatever you do get it must
be in tiny pieces for the training or your german
shepherd dog will be so busy eating the biscuit
that you won’t have time for the training.
You want your german shepherd puppy to quickly eat
the treat and immediately after look at you for
||Hold your treat up by your
face so that the german shepherd puppy will learn
to look you in the eye. If you don’t have
your puppies attention your puppy will not learn.
||Always use a quiet area
with few distraction or interruptions.
||Only one person at a time
should train. Children should always be supervised
by a knowledgeable adult.
||Consistancy counts. I will
spend 2 weeks alone on sit. Twice a day for a few
minutes. After the german shepherd puppy is good
with the sit, I will turn my back, call the pup
and generally the puppy will come around to my front
and sit directly infront of me.
||Stay and down are negative
commands and I generally don’t work on them
until the german shepherd dog is older. However
you can teach the down easily with food so it is
not associated with negative training.
||Heeling can be taught by
holding a treat/toy infront of the german shepherd
dogs face as he walks on the left side of you. The
dog will associate you with food and keep his eyes
on you instead of everything else that is out there.
||Never hit or shout at your
german shepherd dog for not obeying a command.
||Harsh corrections can result
in fear and aggression – both are counter
productive to learning.
||If your german shepherd
dog misbehaves, he should be reprimanded consistenly
and immediately. A firm, verbal rebuke is enough.
Don’t rebuke your dog for doing something
you didn’t see at the moment.
|Hold the treat
so the dog looks up to get it. As the dog tips its head
up it will they will automatically sit. Consistency of
working this way with the sit will produce the response
dog to ‘sit’, then sit down in front of him.
Hold a small piece of food in front of his nose. As you
command ‘down’, move the food down to the
ground so his nose follows it. If he need help, put.
Your hand on his shoulders and guide them down. When he
is lying down, praise him and give him the treat. You
can also push the treat between your german shepherd puppy’s
front legs, as he tried to follow it his back end will
slide into a down position. Praise him and give him the
|From the very
first day you bring your german shepherd puppy into the
house he should be given a treat every time you call him
to you. After your puppy learns the sit you can combine
the ‘come’ with the ‘sit’ and
then give the treat/reward. And always lots of praise
and excitement when your dog comes to you. Never, never
call your dog to you for punishment. Never use his name
negatively. If you instill in your dogs from day one that
it is exciting and rewarding to come to you he will sail
through his teenage stage eagerly wanting to please you.
This could also save your dogs life to know that he is
100% on the recall.
I recommend once you have these commands working smoothly
with your dog that you join a local obedience club and
work on putting all of this together in a routine so you
can be a team. This is usually after the teenage stay
and about 13 – 14 months of age.
|We create train
all puppies from the day that they are weaned. My advice
to you when you start is to put the german shepherd puppy
in the crate and then take the whole family to the movies
so you won’t have to listen to him throw a temper
tantrum. They get use to it quickly. Do not take the puppy
out if he is throwing fit. Once your german shepherd puppy
gets use to it you will be able to tell when he has to
go to the bathroom…his cry will be much different.
